A New "Old" Head Coach

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't recall ever hearing Peyton say that he did not want to play where his father played. In regards to Peyton going to Tenn., I would imagine that Archie had a lot to do with that decision...wanting the best ...

I don't recall ever hearing Peyton say that he did not want to play where his father played. In regards to Peyton going to Tenn., I would imagine that Archie had a lot to do with that decision...wanting the best for his son. He certainly wasn't going to get the best at Ole Miss.
I think Eli went to Ole Miss despite of Archie. I've heard Archie describe Eli in the past as more of a "free spirit", meaning, to me, that Eli pretty much does whatever Eli feels like doing, and doesn't care much about what other people say. Eli probably wanted to go to Ole Miss, and he probably wanted to go to NY. I think that everybody involved is lucky that SD had that pick and not NO.....becausae I feel that Eli would have told NO the same thing he told SD.

Again, I don't recall ever hearing Peyton say he wouldn't play for a team his father played for. I'm not saying he didn't say it, I am just saying that I never heard it. It does seem to me that I read somewhere that Archie said he would prefer his sons didn't play for the Saints, but I could be wrong about that, also.

The thing that I think is most comical is the way that some people have become a little silent when it comes to talking about Eli. I can remember Eli coming out of college and me and some others trying to rally support for Eli on the message boards. I can't tell you how many people predicted him to be a bust, or said he had no talent, etc. AB was still the man at that time. Boy, I sure wish we had Eli now, but, for his sake, I am glad that he is where he is. This organization, the Saints, have been nothing but an embarrassing joke for it's entire existence, and I have seen many a great player come and waste either their entire career, or most of it, playing for an organization that either has no clue as how to win or no concern as to whether they win or not....or possibly both.

Mora is not coming back, the same guy still owns the team and he knows that, to him its the same old Saints...and frankly they have not done anything that would lead me to believe that they have changed or are different...As long as we are talking about old coaches coming back, what about Ditka? I'd give anything to see Jimmy Johnson on the Saints sideline...If we got a coach like that somebody like lineart might want play for us
